Of course Lost Girl would be the series to give us gender bendingÂ Greek gods, Hera and Zeus, with our mysteriously undead Kevin Brown revealing himself/herself as the devious goddess and leaving Zee as the lightning bolt-delivering god. The swap went some way towards explaining my confusion over trying to figure out how Hera was suddenly shooting lightning bolts like Zeus, but Iâ€™ll admit Iâ€™m slightly disappointed it means we have a dude kicking butt as top god on this lady power loving series.
Instead, Hera-as-Kevin Brown was relegated towards cleaning up the curious Alicia and trying (and failing) to take out Dyson. Though that does make sense if Boâ€™s guess about why the Ancients have suddenly returned is correct. Hera might be down with sticking up for her team, but not quite to the extent of Zeusâ€”who might technically be Persephoneâ€™s father. Though, with the obvious sense that Lost Girl is going way off text when it comes to these fae, thereâ€™s no telling what the alliances are or who theyâ€™re really looking out for.
Itâ€™s a nice idea that the Ancients have returned to rescue Persephoneâ€”and maybe thatâ€™s why they were so interested in Boâ€™s â€œtruth,â€ to find out how she got the candle and where Persephone is. Then again, considering theyâ€™ve killed nearly all of Laurenâ€™s employees and devastated the cityâ€”along with an elevator of peopleâ€”and finally, launched Cassie off the balcony of a skyscraper, the Ancients as good guys is a bit of a tough sell.
But if theyâ€™re that loyal to Persephone, whoâ€™s related to them, maybe theyâ€™ll turn out to be as unwilling to harm Boâ€”assuming they find out sheâ€™s one of them as well. Because Iâ€™m pretty sure thatâ€™s what having Hades as a father should mean. Of course, itâ€™s not really news Bo is bandying aboutâ€”keeping the list of people in the know about it to the barest of bare minimumsâ€”though rightfully opting to let Trick in on the update to what happened to his daughter after he turned her over.
I canâ€™t help but feel like we should be seeing just a little bit more remorse from Trick as the revelations about Aifeâ€™s life come out. I understand the need to maintain balance (and that Aifeâ€™s a bit scary on a good day), but surely discovering your daughter gave birth in a cage in Tartarus warrants a bit of a pause if you were the one partially responsible. Then again, Trickâ€™s already had to live with that decision for a long time and he did, technically, do what was right. But Iâ€™m feeling just a tiny bit of sympathy for Aife as the revelations come tumbling out.
Tamsin was in for her own set of revelations when she got succubumped to the curb by Bo. It was easy enough for us to seeâ€”even without the oracles exposing Boâ€™s heartâ€™s desiresâ€”that Tamsin wouldnâ€™t be on that list. But as a Tamsin fan (though not a shipper of the couple) it still hurt to watch her cling to any number of explanations as Bo finally stepped up to tell her the truth. I donâ€™t agree at all with Boâ€™s assertion that Tamsin is confused just because theyâ€™re roommates (having managed to avoid falling in love with any number of my own), but there might be some truth to the fact that Tamsinâ€™s feelings for Bo could be caught up in the complicated history theyâ€™ve shared. It doesnâ€™t make breaking her heart hurt any less, though, and I wasnâ€™t too impressed with Bo by the end of that talk.
Maybe giving the oracles one last go around finally gave us a sense of what direction all those â€œshipsâ€ would be â€œsailingâ€ in before the end, with some kind of Dyson/Lauren/Bo triumvirate being an easy call. But while I doubt Markâ€™s worthiness in general, even I have to admit watching Vex cope with his attraction to Dysonâ€™s son, of all people, was well worth it. And hey, at least it means we can rest easy in the shipping wars now.
- Tamsinâ€™s â€œShit got real,â€ is also how I would describe this episode, now that we know whatâ€™s going on
- â€œNo, no, no, but yes.â€ Was this Vexâ€™s redemption? Because it totally worked for me
- â€œYou smell good wet.â€ Was this not meant as an innuendo? Because if weâ€™re talking ships here â€¦
- â€œExplains the face.â€ Evony, upon discovering Mark is Dysonâ€™s son
- Evonyâ€™s big, bad reveal was a big, bad letdown
Lost Girl airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Showcase.
One thought on “Review: Lost Girl goes to the gods”
Ha-ha, “succubumped to the curb”! Not so ha-ha was seeing Tam-Tam so crushed when Bo laid down her feelings towards her. Hopefully there won’t be any lasting “woman scorned” repercussions. Tamsin did look pretty pissed.
